Finally, "Sonic 4" was an absolute failure in every single respect, and anybody who was ever actually following the project knew that. The only reason it ever made any progress up to this point is because it was moved to this forum, and because someone like Chimpo actually delivered some form of coherent leadership.
Progress? Seriously? The only progress this project really has had so far was in the first two weeks on the other forums. Weather or not that progress was either good or organized can be debated. All that work has since been abandon, and all there is now is a few Sonic sprites and a very small mish mash of level art.
Chimpos so called leadership is just "Fuck you, it's going to be how I
want it." While I respect him as an artist, I'm not sure how effective any leader can be with that kind of attitude. I agree that the way it was before Chimpo took over wasn't going anywhere, but it's not really going anywhere now either. Pretty much for the exact same reason it wasn't getting anywhere at the old forum when Phoebius was in charge.
I'm tired of people criticizing the old work so much, a lot of it was really decent. Phoebius wasn't a bad leader at all, just had a different approach.
